The 25-year-old Elway was arrested in May after an argument with his girlfriend. He was charged with assault and disturbing the peace after allegedly dragging his girlfriend out of a car by her hair and pushing her to the ground when she tried to stand up.
As part of pleading guilty to disturbing the peace, the assault charge was dropped.
Elway, who played college football at Arizona State, was sentenced to one year of domestic violence counseling and one year of probation under monitored sobriety.
